The Mobile Intel Pentium 4 – M Processor

Mobility have been one of the rage in IT fashion for this part of the year, and we have seen how Intel have committed themselves to the mobile cause with the introduction of their Mobile Pentium 4 Processor – M series. For users yearning for Pentium 4-like performances in their notebook, well, this is the answer.

The Mobile Intel Pentium 4 Processor – M comes with features pretty much like what we have seen in the desktop Pentium 4 processors such as a 0.13µm core, 400MHz Processor System Bus, SSE2 and 512KB of L2 cache just to name a few. It also uses the Mobile Intel 845 Chipset and currently supports a processor speed of up to 2.2GHz. As its mobile name imply, Pentium 4 – M processors will also feature functions such as Enhanced Intel SpeedStep technology and Deeper Sleep, to help extend your notebook's battery life.

We would not go too deep into explaining the full details on the Mobile Intel Pentium 4 – M Processors in this article. But for the curious, Intel's homepage here is a good read for those who wants to know more in-depth about this new Mobile processor.

Meanwhile, let's take a look at the first notebook in our lab to feature the Pentium 4 – M processor - the Dell Inspiron 8200.
